Germany lined up for Battle presents striking contrast to Reich at peace by Elmer w correspondence the associated press transit through Germany there was a time when it meant a smooth pleasant journey a Brief glimpse a people at peace. Today a transit journey from Budapest to Copenhagen provides a striking object lesson in the difference Between peace and War. It has much the same effect As plunging into a Tunnel a train leaving brightness and Light at one end and then having it burst upon you suddenly at the other. Immediately across the hungarian austrian Frontier you sense the hold which War has Germany the grimly serious efficiency with which the Reich has organized itself for conflict. You sense it in the soldiers who swing aboard your train in the faces the people the station platforms. You feel rather than see the manner in which everything is dovetailed into the pattern War. This is no longer Budapest where both music and people Are yet Gay where Good food abounds where Normal living still prevails. No this is the greater Reich As it has been lined up for Battle. Across the thin line a Frontier and you Are in a different world where every detail living has been arranged. Two hours from that Frontier and your train grinds to a Stop in Vienna s famous East station. You push your Way through crowds soldiers and officers. The steam from the locomotives seems to swirl around steel helmets and rifles and kit bags but you Are Ever conscious discipline. There is a confusion but a confusion in which everyone appears to know where they Are going and in which the Only false note seems to be the elderly foreigner who is frantic to know where he can get his food rationing card. Must take things easy. Have patience mein Herr an old Gateman admonishes. You will not starve. But have and the advice is Good. Under War conditions trains for civilians May be late and taxis and porters scarce. You must learn to take things easy. Outside the Vienna station it is eerie Black. Full blackouts have just been ordered you Are told and the once Gay capital Austria seems to resent the curtain that has been pulled Over it. Vienna without lights at night Vienna streets deserted almost except for pedestrians rumbling their Way about. The famous ring is but a blur. It seems incongruous and As you Strain your eyes in the darkness the ghostly buildings appear to be bending As though in apology. Your taxi Driver mumbles to himself As he tries to pass a heavy truck. At your Vienna hotel you find the main dining room closed and you have dinner in a Small breakfast room. For the first time you meet food rationing tickets. You sign a document to acknowledge that you Haye received so Many tickets and then learn to look at the menu to discover what you must give in tickets to obtain certain dishes. You find yourself gazing at the butter and realize that All your life so far you have taken food for granted with bread and butter something that existed quite naturally and not to be questioned. You have your first experience with War Coffee served with elaborate care by the head waiter from a Silver pot. With handsome knife and Fork you attack a portion fish Fried in artificial fat. Not Only Are you eating food but you Are eating so Many Grams essential food. And prompted by scone curious instinct you Are careful not to waste. From Vienna to Berlin then you have Only occasional reminders that the third Reich is at War. Your railway car has been used in German Peterson. Polish travel. You sit and stare at framed tourist photographs Krakow and Warsaw photographs that show peaceful tree shaded Parks and new buildings. And in the dining car where you have an ample lunch you sit across from a Young austrian officer who served the polish front and who is now his Way to the Western front. He is clean Cut intelligent enthusiastic. He is Reading a Book the social and agricultural problems the United states and is curious to know hew America will Ever solve its problems. Friendliness is shown. Here he says we have the problems course hut we say to ourselves the fuehrer will take care throughout you meet with friendliness but a friendliness under restraint. Over your head always is the red lettered warning to germans be careful How you speak. The enemy but the friendliness is there even in the tired Porter who takes your bags As you arrive in Friedric Strasse station in Berlin and find yourself in weather so cold your Teeth chatter. In the end you bless the Porter. For to arrive in Berlin at night is a problem. Beyond the station swept with cold winds Berlin is swallowed up in impenetrable darkness and there Are no taxis. With the Porter As a guide you stumble through the darkness to a near by hotel. But the hotel is full. The shortage fuel you afterwards learn has sent people to hotels in preference to their own Homes. You lurch through darkness to another hotel colliding with other pedestrians. Again you Are turned away. At last the Porter takes you by subway to Unter Den Linden for a weary March from hotel to hotel until you at last find a room. And you find it by virtue being an american. An old Hall Porter takes you aside and whispers wait mein Herr. You will have a room. I have been in this hotel 28 years and never let it be said that an american was turned away from the Tho next Day As you travel northward from Berlin still ruminating Berlin today As compared with several years ago the feeling War pressure seems to grow less. The Snow covered Countryside seems to become More cheerful. And at Warnemunde where the ferry to Denmark Waits you take a last look at wartime Germany. Walking up a gangplank you feel the abrupt shift the Quick change from War to peace. Senate candidate Isa visitor Here la do. One jut it Welt the chief objective everyone should be to do one thing Well. Your Rector accomplished thi objective when he spent years his life in preparing himself to care for you when you need medical attention. How foolish then to depend others.
